Gadget designed by Burnham's Mike Turner up for award

A 20-YEAR-OLD man who runs his own business could win an award - for a smart piece of technology which helps companies ensure their staff are safe away from work.
Mike Turner, from Burnham, has devised Staff Guardian, a system which uses satellite tracking so staff can be monitored when working off-site - and includes an SOS button if they get into trouble.
Staff Guardian has been shortlisted for the Shell LiveWIRE awards and Mike said: “We've only been live for a few weeks and to be recognised so quickly is a real boost.”
